Default Greenhorn

Hi everyone,

I'll make this short - I'm a complete greenhorn when it comes to hunting. Never brought up with it, but I'm very serious about my path into the hobby. All I've done is read, read, read, and practice my shot. I've been target shooting and plinking for a few years so I'm familiar with firearms, and a decent shot. Interested in deer hunting.

I'm finally at the point where I'd like to find either an experienced mentor, or a fellow greenhorn who'd like to embrace the challenge with me. Even if it's just showing me the ropes in how you scout, set up and prepare.

A bit about myself - I'm an early 30s family man and I work a skilled trade. My name is Ryan. I live in Calgary. If you want to talk, send me a message. Thanks!

Default Goose hunting around lloydminster AB

Hey

Me and my brother in law are trying to get into goose hunting this fall. Neither of us have ever been before so would love to find someone to give us some tips and pointers. Would be a bonus of they would take us hunting with them to get started.

We are both responsible adults who aren't afraid to put in the work required to get into the sport. I have been deer hunting in the area for a few years now and have permission to hunt some land already. Just looking for some knowledge to avoid a few rookie mistakes.

If you're interested in lending some knowledge, shooting some clays, or even a deer hunting buddy we are always interested in meeting more hunters around the lloydminster/ marwayne area.

Hello everyone,

My name is John, I'm 35 and relatively new to the Calgary area and hunting in general. I didn't grow up in a hunting family and began to take an interest somewhat more recently. I dabbled a little in Saskatchewan, but didn't really have much success, as I had a different hunting partner, with a different hunting style, nearly every time I went out. I'm willing to learn, if someone's got the patience to help.

Default Looking for someone to hunt with? Check out the hunt in common Canadian chapter

Hey everyone,
Newly started and looking to build some steam in Canada, the hunt in common is looking to start a north american hunting mentorship organization to get people connected to eachother and get people introduced to hunting for the first time or gain some more experience. Formly the hunting collective chapters started through the popular meat eater network podcast The Hunting Collective with Ben O'Brien.
Whether you are interested in mentoring someone or looking for some help, check it out!

https://www.facebook.com/groups/thcc...ter/?ref=share

We are developing a network of individuals that love the outdoors and want to share that common ground with others. Looking for Regional ambassadors across the country to help organize in person events, virtual happy hours to create connections and get involved in creating a healthy environment for new and less experienced hunters.
Big things are coming!

Hi Folks,
Looking at a possible move to the Carbon- Drumheller area.
Wondering if there are any liked minded waterfowl and upland bird hunters in the area, that would like to possible get together this fall for some hunting.
I'm 54 avid bird hunter have a well trained lab and a trailer with decoys and blinds.
Will hopefully still be doing some hunting in the Red Deer area also, so could buddy up there also to many of my usual spots.
Send me a DM or text 403- 598-3018.
Cheers,
Dean

Default Live in Langdon looking for a hunting partner

Hello,
Mid 40ís, looking for a big game hunting partner, moderate experience, do rifle trying bow again after many years. Train 5 days a week for hunting season looking for someone who can also hike 10 to 15 km when needed. Not an extreme athlete but try to be shape so I am prepared. Possibly do overnight back country trips this year. Also, recently got a jet boat planning to hunt with it this fall

Other than big game, I also hunt upland with my dog.

Not into drugs. Looking for someone from my general area although I will travel anywhere in Alberta to hunt.

Reach out to me if youíre looking as well.

Thanks!

I live in the bonnyville area. Always looking for anyone interested in outdoors activities, fishing and hunting mainly, but have some spots for both that I'd like to check out with someone. I'm mid 30's with wife and kids, and hard to plan a hike in-winter camp style hunting trip to some of these places I have in mind with the wife and kids (and she has never been keen on me staying out overnight alone in subzero temps without cell service or a buddy) if interested in this, or even any kind of fresh fishing/camping adventure (canoe upstream to some lakes that are pretty much mostly winter accessible unless you own atv, which I don't) I got some places in mind I'd like to try, but haven't had a great opportunity to do it. Pm me if this may be interesting to you and you live in the area, as I'm looking for a buddy who's not a couch potato, not afraid of the work that would be involved to get to these areas, set up camp, etc (camping is alot more work than some people realize, especially if your carry-on capacities are limited to say a backpack or canoe)
Got my own tackle, canoe, aluminum boat, rifles and gear.... Just missing a wingman willing to come along

Anyone looking to hunt WMU 406 together? It's my first year hunting and I will be going during archery season (general is draw only). I have heard there are grizzlies in the area and would like to not go at it myself if I can help it. I have an area in mind that I will be scouting before the season starts and setting up trail cameras.

Looking for hunting partners who don't mind sharing the work. Im local to the red deer area, mid 40s and typically spend a week or more at a time up in wmu 429 or nearby wmu starting late Aug. Depending on scenario and weather often set up tent or wall tent either where the truck stops or after taking the atv and small trailer into the bush approx 10km. Will be after elk bear deer and wolves depending on the scenario.20200926_195729.jpg

Hey all,

Iím relatively new to Alberta (arrived last year) and a total newbie when it comes to hunting. Iím an avid hiker and angler, and willing to travel pretty much anywhere across the province (Iím based out of Edmonton) to meet up and get started on learning the basics

If anyone more experienced is interested in hanging out or needs an extra pair of hands to carry stuff Iíd be willing to join!

Feel free to PM or email (alan.gilligan08@gmail.com).

Hello all

I'm wondering if there is an experienced hunter in the cochrane/Calgary area that is willing to let me join along on one of their hunts(rifle)this fall

I would like to get into hunting eventually but am taking it slow.
I'm in good shape and am happy to pass along a 6pk of your favorite guzzle for some of your knowledge.

Feel free to pm me

Default looking to learn

Hi I'm 27 looking for a hunting mentor/partner(s?). This would be my first time but I'm hoping to get into all kinds of hunting (big game, small game, upland birds, waterfowl). I work in Edson, so I would be able to hunt in the evenings and am in Calgary every other weekend and can go any time then.

Willing to travel as well.

Thanks!
